Finished... sort of! (Posted 18th March 2013)
I solved my tentacle woes with wrap-ties. The foam-coated wires were just the right diameter and length to fit inside the lagging. And now I've covered them in lime green jersey, added a creepy eyeball on the end of one, and made a corrugated card frame to keep them in place in the backpack.
All that's left is to find some cutesy pulshie keyrings to atatch to the backpack zipper, and decide on hairgrips (if any)
Tentacle blues (Posted 25th February 2013)
The polythene pipe lag has been cut to length, and now the shaping process begins. I've cut notches into the tubes to allow it to bend at sharper angles, but my glue is insuffient for the job at hand. I may have to buy a better impact adhesive, and ignore the "do not use on polythene" instructions (in a very well ventilated area obviously!)
Just the props now (Posted 15th February 2013)
The costume is all sorted, and I already have a black wig, now I just need to make the tentacles!
Current plan is fabric-covered pipe lagging (that wierd grey plastic foam stuff) bursting out from the backpack.
Looks normal from the front, but from the back... Aiieeee! XD
